Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, One Aldwych have created a unique afternoon tea. From decadent golden eggs to blueberry brioche and playful flavoured candy floss, every item reflects the wit and wonder of Roald Dahl's classic tale.

Executive Chef Dominic Teague and his team have created a scrumdiddlyumptious One Aldwych afternoon tea menu using the finest, freshest ingredients. Teatime treats are served alongside a selection of award-winning loose leaf teas and infusions from Canton Tea, each of which has been chosen to complement the delicate flavours from the kitchen.

Originally built in 1907 as the home of the Morning Post newspaper, One Aldwych occupies one of the most important Edwardian buildings in London, offering beautiful rooms, serious cocktails, delicious food and a brilliant buzz.

One Aldwych is an award-winning contemporary luxury hotel in the heart of London, just a 4-minute walk away from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    This was one of the best afternoon teas I have ever had. The food was well presented, delicious and very different to other teas out there. Staff were very friendly and welcoming.

    Dry sandwiches, slow service, overated

    We booked the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory themed afternoon tea as a birthday treat. From our arrival the hotel staff were excellent, helpful, polite and attentive. The afternoon tea itself was fantastic, the flavours were beautiful throughout and the cocktail looked and tasted fantastic. Everything was well presented and the flavoured teas are a must. The overall experience was wonderful and the service was superb. Highly recommended.

    I was very disappointed. The restaurant is not nice. It's actually a strange room, it felt like a hall, a waiting place, the ambience isn't nice. The dishes are old-fashioned in a bad way. Sorry, but that's how I felt. No style. The sandwiches were disappointing, too. Nothing special. Wouldn't go again.

    Fantastic afternoon tea. Staff were all friendly and attentive, it was my childrens birthday and staff presented them with a slice of birthday cake with a candle. It was such a lovely touch.
    Food was well presented and delicious, my favourites were the Vegetable Wellington and Lemon Meringue Pie.

    I would definitely recommend and would return.

    Beautiful setting, tea menu enticing but alas, the food was disappointing, to put it mildly. Savories were anything but, photogenic sweets
    tasted of nothing but sugar; pretty as they were to behold they lacked subtlety and depth of flavor. A diabetic coma became a distinct possibility.
    The jams were lovely, and the scones were the only edible items. I left most of the food untouched. The chocolate tea went tannic too quickly.

    Lovely staff who were really friendly, great sandwiches and delicious desserts!

    Overall, the service and food was fantastic but the scons could have been warmer. The staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome. I think the décor could be jazzed up a little more and the place was harder to find than expected as my Google maps took me to the other side of the building so instructions on how to get to the restaurant would have been helpful in the confirmation email. I also think you should have given us the option to pay online beforehand like most other high end afternoon tea places but I see why you don't have that option- allows you to add on the extra service charge - very cheeky!! This makes the afternoon tea cost a lot higher than initially advertised as a reasonable £39 - I ended up paying almost £100 as I was treating a friend- misrep? Overall, I would give it a 9/10 though.

    Lovely experience and imaginative concept however, the food and cakes were lacking on the taste front. Guessing the flavour of the candy floss was my favourite part. Definitely worth a visit.
